In his new book on Christian theology, “The Road Back,” Wabash author Rick Tolley offers refreshing lessons to draw Christians even closer to God and re-ignite the love that Christians might have lost.
Many today are searching for relevance of the Christian life. In “The Road Back,” Tolley challenges those who are wrestling with the Christian life to think outside the box. With a unique look at how the Christian life fits into the world today, he uses stories and analogies that will challenge the readers’ thinking. His plain and simple approach challenges them to grow deeper in their walk with God by going outside traditional, religious thinking without compromising God’s Word.
This book, however, is not intended to be a substitute for The Word of God, but only to draw readers into the Bible, to see the valuable treasures that are there for them to discover. It’s intended to spark a hunger to know God and his plan and purpose for their lives. It will challenge readers to ask themselves the tough questions that come up in traditional Christianity.
